RE: Marker-assisted improvement of drought and blast resistance in popular rice varieties of VietNam
This it to confirm our coordinate the project entitled “Marker-assisted improvement of drought and blast resistance in popular rice varieties of 2VietNam”.
"In this project, led by Dr. Katherine Steele of Bangor University and Professor Nguyen Thi Lang of HATRI, Vietnam.
A recent estimate on climate change predicts the water deficit to deteriorate further in years to come, with an increase in both the intensity and frequency of droughts, leading to a significant reduction in irrigation area in some regions of Vietnam likely in the 2030s and 2050s. The situation is grim, as stated by the Mekong Region Commission, a regional inter-governmental agency, which emphasizes that countries in the region are not as familiar with drought management as they are with flood preparedness. Progress in breeding for drought resistance has been slow, but marker-assisted mapping and introgression of major effect QTL for grain yield under drought can be an efficient and fast-track approach for breeding drought tolerance. The proposed project is very timely because it complements our research program and will support capacity development for the generation of new rice lines that could ultimately benefit rice production in Vietnam in an unpredictable climate.
We look forward to working closely with the teams from the UK for the successful implementation of this project."
With best regards,
